Question by pups: Einstein:”To punish me for my contempt for authority, fate made me an authority myself.”Dutch courage or wise?
*Dutch courage – bravery induced by alcoholic liquors.

I mean, should we consider this daring, immodest and contemptuous statement by Albert Einstein as having been inspired by some drink OR is it an instance of his brilliant and sophisticated deep wisdom?
